SF Drabble #172 “The Venal Shepherd”

I was originally a Company man. But after the collapse there was no Company, so I had to go Corporate. All my kit is paid for by the Inc. Stealth suit, smart gun, fake iRecords.

I considered going freelance, but not for very long; people loyal to nothing are rarely hired, and when they are it’s for truly repellant scenarios that would nauseate even the most hardened operative. Plus, afterwards you get a bullet for your trouble, to ‘tie up loose ends’.

Most of what I do is shadow security for Honchos. I rarely have to kill. It’s almost boring.
